After he wowed the crowd with a decisive victory Thursday in the 200m dash, he put on a different kind of show.
Putting his finger to his lips as he bounded across the finish line, he shushed the detractors who worried he couldn't repeat his record-breaking performance in Beijing. Wrong.
He posed for the cameras doing his famous 'Bolt' move, pointing his arms up to the left with the Jamaican flag tied around his neck like a superhero's cape.
He dropped to the track and did some pushups, as if to say, I could do this all day long.
And then he really hammed it up, taking the camera from Jimmy Wixtröm of Scandinavia's Aftonbladet newspaper and snapping photos of the spectators, the photographers and his fellow athletes.
Bolt and Wixtröm apparently have a history: the sprinter had taken some shots on the photographer's camera at the 2011 world championships in Daegu and at a workout in Rome.
According to Bolt, Wixtröm was the instigator.
“Every time he sees me, he says, ‘Usain, take a picture, Usain, take a picture.’ So I gave a promise,” Bolt told Aftonbladet.
